probstblueribbon (3717) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2009
500 ml bottle via julienhuxley, shared with Billy, served cool in a tuumbler. NO21/09.

App.: Deep brown-black, so-so tan head. Aroma: INFECTED! Unpleasant organic acids, some nice deep malts underneath (the silver lining), generally bad. Palate: Medium+ body, gentle carbonation. Flav.: Some nice black coffee and dark chocolate notes, light fruitiness, marred by infection; lightly sweet, low bitterness inappropriate tang.

Quite unfortunate. Needs to be re-rated.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2007
Pours a black color with brown highlights and a medium, light brown head. Aroma of chocolate and vanilla beans, there’s a promise of luscious malt in there. Good flavor of chocolate with rich roasted malt and a dry, bitter finish. THe body is medium with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation.

puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Aroma of palm oil, roast, with a slick, greasy, thick and steaky body to it. Light bitter in the mouth with good complexity, with lots of roasty coffee in there. Notes of root vegetables are present. Balanced and clean, kind of bourbony despite its lack of barrel aging. Chalky and creamy and easy drinking. I’m looking forward to trying the BBA’d version of this Fred provided.

GregClow (3187) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2010
Bottle shared with blankboy & garthicus at Volo, circa Dec 2008. Deep ruby with a small mocha head. Roasted malt aroma with a slight lactic sourness and hints of cold coffee. Medium bodied. Flavour is interesting - quite malty, but also a bit funky, plus notes of caramel and dry cocoa. Quite unique, and quite nice.
